T2014-284 Lorain is a soybean variety with excellent yields and resistance to Phytophthora sojae. 

LORAIN (formerly HS7W-82) is a 2014 soybean release of the Ohio State University. Lorain is a conventional soybean variety being released due to its excellent yields and race-specific resistance Rps1c to Phytophthora sojae. Based on a single green house assay, Lorain is moderately susceptible to Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS). Root rot scores indicated that Lorain has high levels of partial resistance which are similar to Dennison. Lorain is a 3.4 maturity variety with white flowers, light tawny pubescence, dull yellow seed coat, black hilum and indeterminate growth habit.
